Members of UKH and BBPA are being encouraged to use the new age verification test protocol in order to address underage gambling in pubs.
The Gambling Commission has highlighted a failure by pubs to prevent under-18s using gaming machines intended for adults. Failure to comply with legislation can lead to a licence review.
Drugs are increasingly being used and dealt in pubs. It is important that licensees and their staff are aware of the potential resulting damage to the reputation of the premises and licence if a drug problem is not tackled.
